One of the most impressive museum entrances of all time, the @royaltyrrell
museum makes you walk beneath this pack of theropods (albertasaurus), a very humbling experience to say the least. the royal tyrrell is one of the best dinosaur museums in the world, known for its collection of more than 130,000 fossils.
located 6 km (4 mi) northwest from drumheller, alberta and 135 km (84 mi) northeast from calgary, the museum is situated in the middle of the fossil-bearing strata of the late cretaceous horseshoe canyon formation and holds numerous specimens from the alberta badlands, dinosaur provincial park and the devil's coulee dinosaur egg site.
albertosaurus is a genus of tyrannosaurid theropod dinosaurs that lived in western north america during the late cretaceous period, about 70 million years ago. the type species, a. sarcophagus, was apparently restricted in range to the modern-day canadian province of alberta, after which the genus is named. 🦖
